Protein Banana Bread

I’m definitely not the first person to create my own banana bread recipe, nor will I be the last.  In fact, I debated even posting this because there are so many banana bread recipes floating about.  But since I have received many requests I decided to share the recipe I have been using lately.  Besides, this Protein Banana Bread is so simple to make, satiating and healthy that not putting it on my blog would be some-what of a crime 😉

Without further ado,  here’s my simple Protein Banana Bread recipe…

Protein Banana Bread

Ingredients

  • 2 extra ripe bananas
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 scoop Quest Nutrition Multi-Purpose Protein Powder*
  • 1/4 Cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 Cup white rice flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 Cup warm water

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Mash bananas in a large mixing bowl (I used a fork).
  3. Add in eggs and vanilla, mix well.
  4. Add in all dry ingredients, mix well.
  5. Add in warm water, mix well.
  6. Pour batter in a lined bread pan.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes.  (Time may vary if you are using a different protein powder.)

*I have not tried substituting with any other protein powder, so I’m not sure whether the results will be the same.  I have been using this brand/flavor because I’ve had it sitting in my pantry for a while.  I like that it is unflavored and doesn’t contain any sweeteners, therefore can be used in many recipes.

I often add extra ingredients to this basic banana bread recipe, such as granola, nuts or shredded coconut for some added flavor and texture.
